One of America’s top sheriffs and supporter of President Trump is warning that if the administration doesn’t curb the explosion of illegal immigration across the southern border, the president will lose reelection in 2020.
“This last election was a mandate,” said Frederick County, Md., Sheriff Chuck Jenkins. “If he doesn’t accomplish something, he’s done. His whole campaign was 75% was based on that,” he told Secrets at an immigration roundtable in neighboring Virginia Wednesday night.
Jenkins, a forceful advocate for Trump and against illegal immigration, was in Culpeper, Va., to talk up that county’s bid to work with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
This is my message to end open borders, America's greatest threat. Stand with many of America's Sheriff's to protect our counties and all Americans. #EndTheBorderCrisis now. pic.twitter.com/5jIBr8vjUF

He warned that the accomplishments so far to limit illegal immigration would be killed if Trump loses to any of the two dozen Democrats running for the nomination, most of whom support loosening restrictions.
“It will undo everything that we’ve managed to accomplish in the past couple of years which is not a hell of a lot but it will just undo it all,” said Jenkins, dubbed “the next Joe Arpaio” for his toughness on illegal immigration that was ripping his county until he led a crackdown.
